A procedure first invented by Stacy Wilkinson in which anyone can participate. There are a few rules to "planking" however.

1. You must always lay face down, ensuring your face remains expressionless for the duration of the Plank.
2. Your legs must remain straight, and together with toes pointed.
3. Your arms must be placed by your side, held straight and fingers pointed.
4. You must make it known that you are Planking.

5. Your safety should always be considered. Properly thought through Planking procedures should always go to plan. Never put your self at undue risk.
6. Every Plank that is captured must be named.
Did you see Kaleb K. "planking" on Fb? Yeah, Stacy Wilkinson invented planking.

to lay face down flat with nose on ground and arms by your side to resemble a plank of wood. Not to be confused with a suprised planker or an hopeful homo planker. Extreme planking is the performance of planking in a dangerous or illegal place i.e on a police car or sign or high ledge.

To perform a suprised planker simply sneak up on a planking person and jam/stick any number of fingers into their asshole.
A hopeful homo planker is one who planks in the hope of becoming a surpised planker i.e lays down to plank well knowing and hoping to have fingers pushed against their asshole.

The act of lying face down in an extremely rigid state, with arms and legs straight, hence resembling a wooden 'plank'. Recent, hard-hitting fad in particular throughout Australia. Has been known to be lethal if participated in irrisponsibly, however the fad involves competition of participators composed of the danger/difficulty of the particular plank. Despite this, planking can be embraced by the begginner to the advanced, with potential planking surfaces ranging from the ground to on top of moving vehicles. However many plankers choose to rest the head on one surface and the feet on another, hence creating a bridgelike 'plank'.
Lets go planking, man

Planking is where you take a picture of yourself laying on some obscure object as stiff as a board. It is all about having fun and coming up with some really neet stuff. Also, its a new viral craze.
My friends and I took some really awesome pictures of us planking today.

An Australian facebook craze in 2011, which involves going to a random place and lying down flat in a straight 'plank' position, getting someone to take a photo, and uploading it to facebook with no explanation.
